Forensic DNA Applications: An  Interdisciplinary Perspective, Second Edition is fully updated to  outline the latest advances in forensic DNA testing techniques and  applications. It continues to fill the need for a reference book for  people working in the field of forensic molecular biology testing and  research as well as individuals investigating and adjudicating cases  involving DNA evidence, whether they be civil or criminal cases.

DNA  techniques have greatly impacted obvious traditional forensic areas,  but such advances have also positively affected myriad new areas of  research and inquiry. It is possible today to think about solving  forensic problems that were simply unheard of even a few years ago. As  such, the book pulls all relevant research and applied science together  into a detailed and comprehensive collection.

Part  I begins with the history and development of DNA typing and profiling  for criminal and civil purposes. It discusses the statistical  interpretation of results with case examples, mitochondrial DNA testing,  Y single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and short tandem repeats  (STRs), and X SNP and STR testing. It also explores low copy number DNA  typing, mixtures, and quality assurance and control. Part II moves on to  cover the various uses and applications of analyzing collected physical  evidence, victim identification in mass disasters, analyzing animal  DNA, forensic botany, and other unique applications. Part III is  dedicated to the latest advances and developments in human molecular  biology and Part IV looks at policies and laws and ethics governing DNA  evidence, and its utilization in various cases and the courts.

Forensic  DNA Applications, Second Edition covers cutting-edge research and  advancements in the field and is the most up-to-date reference  available. Edited and contributed to by the world's foremost leaders in  the field, it is a must-have reference for established professionals,  and an essential resource to legal professionals―lawyers and judges  dealing with civil and criminal cases involving DNA technology―as well  as students entering the fields of genetics and forensic DNA analysis.
